Safeguarding Audits for Churches and Circuits
The Church is one place in British society where five different groups of people have a rightful place:
children and young people
adults who may be vulnerable
those who have experienced abuse
those who may be a risk to others
church leaders, staff and volunteers
It is therefore essential to ensure arrangements reflect the importance of safeguarding in all of these groups and communities.
Transparency and accountability are key to best safeguarding practice; the District is committed to ensure London achieves this throughout all layers of the Methodist Church and that consistency is achieved across all churches and circuits.
Below you will find documents and information to help you through the process of auditing. A video recording of the presentation and spreadsheet tour is also available below.
If you have any further questions, please contact Karen Stapley, Assistant District Safeguarding Officer.
